by Adam Alexander
Is there really such a thing as Blue Lava from a volcano? What does the “skunk” smell a beer makes have in common with a skunk? What is a female Dude called? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. The chemical compounds that cause a “skunk” smell in old beer are the same compounds that actual skunks have in their spray. (Professor Beer)

2. Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida has something called, “Fox Day”. The President cancels all classes, providing students with a surprise day off to explore local beaches and amusement parks, together as a college, returning in the late afternoon for a barbecue. It’s known as Fox Day, because a statue of a fox is placed on the school’s main lawn, signifying the day off. (Rollins College)

3. There’s one volcano in the world that doesn’t have red or orange lava. The lava from the Kawah Ijen volcano in Indonesia is BRIGHT BLUE. (Smithsonian)

4. The correct word for a female dude is NOT dudette, it’s dudine. (Merriam-Webster)

5. “Pong” was never supposed to be released!  A developer at Atari made it during a training exercise. But Atari’s founder liked it so much they decided to take it public. (Gizmodo)
